  • Introduction

    The Seven Hearths Bed & Breakfast front of inn

    The Seven Hearths Bed and Breakfast in Chesterfield, Massachusetts is a large Dutch gambrel built in 1891 and has been restored to display its original charm and elegance. It provides a homelike atmosphere with country decor accented by antique furnishings and curious curios. The attitude of The Seven Hearths is that guests should arrive feeling welcome, and leave as new found friends.

    The Seven Hearths is located in the quaint, slow-paced town center of Chesterfield, population 1100. Located on the General LaFayette Trail, it is a quiet village nestled between the Berkshire Hills and the Connecticut River Valley. The Inn is located only twelve miles from Northampton, home of Smith College, and about a thirty minute drive from the five-college area.

    The Seven Hearths offers unique, private accommodations at competitive rates. We offer you a wonderful alternative lodging option to hotels & motels located in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, and in the Five College Area of Northampton, Amherst, Deerfield, & South Hadley.

    In winter, each of the beds have cozy flannel sheets with electric blankets and plenty of wood for the fireplace, along with fragrantly scented house warmer candles by our nearby friends at Yankee Candle provide for the added ambiance and warmth. Due to our Berkshire elevation, summer evenings generally bring cool breezes. Each room is supplied with air conditioning for that extra comfort, and is also equipped with radio/alarm. A separate hall refrigerator is also available for guests.
